C&S was awarded the opportunity to join a team of consultants to perform mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural engineering services on a project slated to last approximately 2.5 years with a cost upwards of $15 million. This endeavor united the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida with Starbucks Coffee Company.
The original vision of all parties involved was to serve coffee to guests from the largest coffeehouse company in the world in each of the entertainment giant’s four major resort parks. Each Starbucks location would cost approximately $3 million to $4 million to design and renovate in existing spaces in each resort park.
C&S had to overcome various obstacles along the way that included coordinating with numerous specialty contractors and design consultants, along with negotiating between the two owning companies. C&S was also involved during the construction phase to perform various reviews and inspections, and to curb issues as they arose to ensure the project was completed on time and in the most efficient manner.
